Finally we get Dead or Alive on PC. Remember the silky smooth combat , the rock paper scissors type encounters, the cool characters and risque costumes? They've all made the transition over. There are a boatload of costumes included for the characters. However this isn't quite the definitive version of the game. The soft engine physical and extra effects included on the console version is baffling absent. There aren't many playing the online multiplayer either.
DOA5LR is a very fast , and deep game.Fighter models are gorgeously detailed and there is many effect like water, dirt and body physics. But Pc performance of the game isn't great and some aspects of game looks like last generation. Carrier and training mode make a good job to teach you the basics of the gameplay but definitely it takes really much time to master game's famous triangle system.There is also arcade mode for a quickstart fight and online mode matches you a player base on your skill but there isn't so much people to find on this mode unfortunately. Also game has insane amount of dlc dressing content that is a bit weird. Despite it's flaws DOA5LR is a great fighting game and only 3D one on PC for now.
When the original Xbox came out, I purchased it with 2 games: Halo and Dead or Alive 3. I loved that game so much. It was the best fighting game that I had ever played before and I instantly fell in love with the series. I purchased 4 when it came out and loved it too. Within the last couple of years I have sold my consoles and have become a dedicated pc gamer, which I won't get into the many benefits of being a pc gamer. THe PC gamers have had a lack of great fighting games and I thought it would be the best thing in the world for the pc to get DOA, and it finally happened. Now, I know it wasn't the best port that could have ever happened, but nevertheless I am glad it happened. DOA5LR is still a solid fighting game that uses one of the best fighting systems out there. The graphics are great, even though they could be better. We are still waiting on the online mode which is frustrating but that isn't why I bought the games so it doesn't hurt my opinion of it too much. This might be the only DOA for the pc with all the modding fiasco but I hope that a few bad apples doesn't dissuade them from releasing more for the pc. This is a great fighting game and I would recommend it to anyone that enjoys fighting games.
Forget all the hateful 'reviews' that harp on about how this isn't the same exact version as on the PS4 or Xbone. This game functions superbly well for something gamerz thought they would never find in the PC section. The fighting mechanics are solid, miles better than anything Tekken can hope to be, and while not as complex as Virtua Fighter, is more fluid and accessible than that game (ie. more fun). As a 3D fighter, you can't really compare it to 2D fighters, but suffice to say I've had more fun playing this than Mortal Kombat X too. MKX felt a bit too rigid in combo build-up among other problems. This game has a solid 60fps in battle even on a low-end graphics card. Graphics aren't the best thing ever but gameplay > graphics anyway and if graphics was such a huge thing we'd never have indie games or remasters. Remember, this is really a PS3/X360 game that has been slightly touched up. Even then, by focussing primarily on the characters, DOA5: LR has the best looking fighters around. Even better than on the PS4/Xbone if you have a strong PC, but haterz can't see clearly with their hater vision. Team Ninja look to be continually supporting the game by releasing DLCs on PC and by adding Steam features like Achievements. All Steam features are pointless flash that some gamerz think are more important that the actual game. No people, Achievements are not more important that the actual game. And they can be easily added to the game later anyway, like Team Ninja are doing. Online gameplay looks to be coming soon in June too, a treat for PC gamez who would otherwise have NEVER been able to play DOA5 at all without this game. I guess I should mention what isn't in this version of DOA5: LR. There's no option for crazy boob physics. Somehow the haterz value this over actual gameplay, mind-boggling. Then there are 2 less stages, which in itself isn't a big deal, but is an actual valid complaint, so it does knock the score down. And that's it really. Online is coming, so that's not a valid complaint. Go and experience a great game.
This game, its a real shame thats pretty much what it all boils down to. it had a lot of potential as the core gameplay isnt bad however its weird how the developers thought that key features could be taken out and then they expect people to be fine with this and not complain about it. Well as predicted it had a very bad start and was very buggy and the graphics are horrid considering even the ps4 version looked better which makes no sense at all as its very easy to port from ps4 to pc these days. The AI seems to also be broken as well as it lacks variation in its attack patterns. No multiplayer........ Massive let down.
